      I added this update:

      And contrary to all reports thus far, the AP (via HuffPo) is now reporting that the rig WAS INDEED IN PRODUCTION (H/T to Veritas):

      The platform is a fixed petroleum platform that was in production at the time of the fire, according to a homeland security operational update obtained by The Associated Press.

      The update said the platform was producing about 58,800 gallons of oil and 900,000 cubic feet of gas per day. The platform can store 4,200 gallons of oil.

      No mention of these updated reports on CNN or MSNBC.
